Easiest Romanian Meatball Recipe 

Romanian meatballs, or “Chiftele,” are a popular dish. Ground pork, shredded potatoes, and fresh herbs make these meatballs delicious.  

– 1 tablespoon vegetable oil – 2 small onions  – 2 cloves garlic – 2 pounds ground pork – 2 medium potatoes  – 2 large egg – ½ cup breadcrumb – ½ teaspoon salt – ½ teaspoon pepper  – ¼ cup parsley – ¼ cup dill



Sauté garlic and onions till soft. Grated potato should be added and cooked for a few minutes until soft. 


The onion/potato mixture, ground pork, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, and chopped dill should be mixed in a large bowl.


Make around 30 meatballs or patties from the mixture. For even cooking, they shouldn't be flawless but should be similar in size and shape.
